Hand Sewing and Buttons – You will get get comfortable with fabrics and thread to create fashionable flower embellishments to use on T-shirts, bags, headbands or pins. In this session we will thread a needle, follow simple patterns, cut fabric, hand sew and sew a button. It’s a great way to ease into the machine.
